Sony is trying incredibly hard to get profits up, and that's why they have blu-ray, so they can market to an even wider market in the DVD-movie industry. Nintendo did not just make all its profits from good Wii sales ... they sale a huge amount of DS systems worldwide ... about 50 million to be exact.
